Freddie Roach: Anderson Silva vs. Georges St. Pierre = Manny Pacquio vs. Floyd Mayweather

Famed boxing trainer, Freddie Roach compares the potential mixed martial arts super fight between UFC champions, Anderson Silva and Georges St. Pierre to the equivalent of Many Pacquio vs. Floyd Mayweather.

Roach, speaking on an edition of Ultimate Insider, said:

“It’s a great fight. It’s Pacquio-Mayweather in MMA. It’s one guy going up in weight to fight the bigger and supposedly better guy. Anderson is the better boxer at this point. Georges is getting better. I’m a lot closer with Georges than I am with Anderson at this point. There are some things I’ve learned about Anderson I think I can help Georges with. … That’s one fight I don’t think you’d have to worry about Anderson getting up for. For that fight I expect both guys to be at their best. Georges is stronger physically and can rough him up on the inside. Anderson is more of a technician and knows distance. Distance is the key to that fight, though.”
